St. Stephen’s offers grants to community

MIDDLEBURY — St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church of Middlebury is using money earned through its annual Peasant Market to offer grants to the community.

The church on the green in Middlebury is now accepting grant proposals for programs in two categories: ones that address the needs of children and youth, and ones that address food insecurity. The grants, which will go to 501c-3 non-profit organizations, can range from $500-$5,000. St. Stephen’s officials will consider multi-year grants. The deadline for submitting grants is May 6.

For 75 years, the people of St. Stephen’s have joined together to host the Peasant Market, a huge summertime yard sale inside and outside the church. Each year, the profits from this event are returned to the community in the form of grants to non-profit organizations.

To get an application, send an email to St. Stephen’s Outreach Committee using [email protected]. Include the following information:  organization name, contact information, non-profit status and a brief overview of the program.
